Amanda's Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks butter, softened 

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup brown sugar packed

3/4 cup sugar

2 3/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp corn starch

1 bag of chocolate chips

*sea salt - optional


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter for 3-5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add sugars and mix an additional 3 minutes. Add one egg at a time, mixing for 1 minute with each egg. On the second egg, add vanilla as well. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined---DO NOT OVERMIX. Add chocolate chips (I use dark). Again, do not overmix! Using a large ice cream scoop (I use pioneer women's large ice cream scoop found at Walmart), scoop out cookies onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for  9-10 minutes. *Optional---As soon as you remove the cookies from the oven, sprinkle with sea salt. The cookies should be barely golden on top and cracking. The middle should be slightly under-baked. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a brown paper bag, parchment paper, or cooling rack. 


Your dough should look light and fluffy after mixing wet ingredients together

All mixed together

Do not overmix the dry ingredients!
